    In the early days of our industry, equipment was made to serve the user’s needs. Many of the original studio owners came from a radio background. They built their own equipment, from consoles to compressors to equalizers, etc. They didn’t have cost-effective manufacturing in mind when they created this equipment. They built it in order to make superior-sounding recordings. At some point, other people in the audio community asked these pioneers to build equipment for their studios. The world of… View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   Limitless audio. That’s the beauty of digital recording. I can record a lead vocal as many times as I want. I can have a guitarist come in and play a hundred different versions of a guitar solo. Then I can stay up until the wee hours of the morning, sifting through all the different takes to find the perfect one. That’s a good thing, right? Well, it can be. However, having… View this story

    Though producer, DJ, and multi-instrumentalist Zedd only began producing electronic music in 2009, his music quickly became a defining sound of contemporary electronic pop thanks to 2012’s “Clarity” and 2015’s “I Want You to Know.” Having long used Antelope Audio clocking and conversion in his work, Zedd and his engineer had no trouble deciding on the Orion Studio when they decamped their operation to Zedd’s home. Since the studio’s completion, Antelope Audio’s single-rack-space USB+Thunderbolt interface has delivered everything Zedd needs… View this story

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   Let me start off by saying that I am not a vocal producer. I am an engineer that has worked with tons of vocalists and producers. Given this, I have a good understanding of how to layer vocals. Unfortunately, there is no one idea that will work for vocals as a whole. With so many different styles and genres of music, my attempt is to spark ideas only. One thing I do know for certain,… View this story
